That is exactly what happened.  However, my shaft is a tight fit, not slipping easily into coupler, this I am perplexed.   Having said this, I know prior owner and it has been at least 10 years since installed.  I think a periodic removal and inspection of set screws in order.  Bill Walker On Jun

Chris,    This is a serious, but not fatal, problem.  Good advice to mark shaft where it enters coupler, then forward and reverse at dock or mooring.  Observe shaft while doing this if you have a helper.   Then check the mark.  If shaft is pulling out of coupler I recommend that you remove the
